Reviews

  • At last an unprintable book that is fit to read

    Ezra Pound
  • A momentous event in the history of modern writing

    Samuel Beckett
  • One of the ten or twenty great novels of our century, a revolution in consciousness equal to The Sun Also Rises

    Norman Mailer
  • Read him for five pages, ten pages, and you feel the peculiar relief that comes not so much from understanding as from being understood. 'He knows all about me,' you feel; 'he wrote this especially for me'. It is as though you could hear a voice speaking to you, a friendly American voice, with no humbug in it, no moral purpose, merely an implicit assumption that we are all alike

    George Orwell
  • The book that forever changed the way American literature would be written

    Erica Jong
